About Mike Donovan

My wife and I have 3 boys ages 15-8 who have enjoyed vacationing in Southwest Michigan for over 20 years. I enjoy all the wonderful golf courses nearby and my wife enjoys the beach, restaurants, and outlet shopping.

Mike Donovan purchased this house in 1998

Why Mike Donovan chose Union Pier

It is short drive from Chicago near Lake Michigan beaches and golf. Loads of things to do for all age groups. We also love the snow and activities in the winter.

Great cottage, close to beach and Farmers Market. We walked everywhere!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was very clean with everything we needed. Great fire pit and screened in porch.

Mike was very easy to deal with and very accommodating. We were there with teenage girls and they loved it! I would rent this property again.

Always a treat!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th time staying at this home and our whole family loves it. The walk to the beach is easy and the park behind the house is a bonus for the little ones. The house always has everything we need (we stay in for most meals) and the outdoor shower is great to help quickly get cleaned up from the beach. Super easy walk/bike ride to the farmer's market on Sat/Sun and to the sweet shops in Union Pier. We always love our stays in Union Pier!

Girls Weekend - GREAT get away!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this home for a girls weekend. it was PERFECT! I have been booking with VRBO for a very long time, this house was by far the nicest rental I have ever had. From the moment I stepped into the cozy screened-in porch, I knew this was a winner. The house is beautifully decorated, spotless, great location with just a short 5 min. walk to the beach (NOTE: there really IS a beach, unlike some areas in that area which have eroded away) and within walking distance to restaurants and coffee shops. It just felt like home. Although we did not use it, there was a fire pit stocked with wood, a shed with any kind of water toys, bikes, sleds, sand toys AND an outdoor shower. This house would be a great respite any time of year. I defiantly will be coming back for a full week. Thanks Mike! LOVE THIS HOUSE!

Great location and house!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this home and we've already booked our vacation here next year! We absolutely love the location of this backs right up to a lovely little park where our kids can play and we can easily walk to the beach and farmer's market on Saturday and Sunday. The home is well outfitted with everything we need and the outdoor shower is great for cleaning up the kids from the beach. We've vacationed up in this area of Michigan for 30 years and Union Pier is by far one of our favorite little spots! Thanks for sharing your home with us, Mike!

Fun in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We were amazed at this great home! This place is so clean and perfectly equipped to make any vacation restful and fun. The location is wonderful for the beach and local attractions. We biked, went to the beach, and enjoyed the local restaurants. The house is comfortable and supplied with towels, linens, and kitchen supplies. We loved the screened porch and enjoyed morning coffee there daily. The neighborhood is so quiet and people are friendly. There is an outdoor fire pit or you can carry firewood to the beach and watch the sunset! The shed is full of beach chairs, toys, and umbrellas. This place really has a welcoming atmosphere. We look forward to our next stay! Thanks for a wonderful week!
